LET'S LOOK AT THE NUMBERS
WHAT SETS US APART?
WORD OF MOUTH
In February 2018, 19 months into my English Channel swim training, the pain resulting from the deterioration of my hip prevented me from going any further. I consulted Dr Grobler and he managed to schedule me in last minute for a hip replacement in early March. Only 3 weeks after a successful op (with minimal scarring!) I was back in the water training and completed the swim in August as planned – at the age of 62! A huge thanks to you as I couldn’t have done it without you!
After 40 years of surfing, I have never fallen off my board while on take-off however, this happened on a surf trip to Bali. Having repeated falls, coupled with stiffness in my hip, I realised something was wrong. I met with Dr Dower and after taking one look at my x-ray, he pointed out that I needed a hip replacement. After 3 months I was back to playing tennis, and I started surfing the month after. Now more than a year after the op, I have been on a tropical surf trip and an off-site skiing trip and have had no problems with my hip. Thank you, Dr Dower, for getting me back into action so quickly!
Only 7 months after my hip replacement at Cape Hip and Knee, I successfully completed the Tour de Africa from Cairo to Cape Town. My new hip has also taken me across Australia and I continue to enjoy many new cycling adventures. None of this would’ve been possible if it wasn’t for Cape Hip and Knee!
When I had hip replacement surgery eight years ago, I feared it would mean the end of competitive tennis for me. However, after I had my hip replacement surgery, done by Dr Grobler at Cape Hip and Knee, I continued to play on the International Tennis Federation Seniors circuit and was even faster and better than before! My ranking in both singles and doubles improved significantly as a result. In 2019 I had to have the ‘other’ hip replaced and with such a fast recovery I still continue to play and compete. Thank you so much for giving me my mobility back, not just for tennis, but for all the things that I can now do and enjoy!
